Legislative Alert: President’s Budget Proposes Severe Cuts to Housing

The Trump Administration’s fiscal year (FY) 2018 Budget Request, A New Foundation for American Greatness, proposes dramatic cuts to housing and community development programs. If enacted, these proposals would place hundreds of thousands of families at risk of homelessness and reduce access to better work, transit, education, and health care options for many more. These proposals come at a time when more and more Americans are struggling to afford a place to call home.

Safe and stable home connected to resources like health care, schools, jobs and transportation is the foundation for a successful life. Federal investments in housing leverage private and local investments at a rate greater than three to one, transforming communities and the lives of the people there. Help persuade Congress to reject the ideas in the President’s Budget Request – they would harm millions of Americans and their communities.
